TIDE Park Beautification Committee

The TIDE Park Beautification Committee consists of one representative from each company located in the Park, a representative from Walmart and the owner of the company who has the contract for grass cutting in the Park. The Committee is chaired by a member of the TIDE Board of Directors. All Committee members are volunteers.

The Beautification Committee carries out projects to maintain the natural beauty of the Park as well as to beautify it further.

A major annual task is the Earth Day clean up project which has been carried out successfully each year since 2009. Earth Day clean up involves many volunteers from the companies located in the Park.

“We do this because we work here and we want to be proud of where we work,” say many of the volunteers.

Other successful projects include arranging for more lighting to be installed in the Park, arranging for potholes in the roads to be repaired, planting trees and building flower boxes for placement at the entrance to the Park.

TIDE is very proud of this Committee because they work very effectively as a team and they have accomplished a great deal.
